's kind of history of race in america. and so this code goes all the way down to i guess the last book i entered was booked number 1,088, our times, the illustrated history of the 20th century, race law, king came preaching, tend -- tet! but basically this is just kind of the list of the books i consulted or referred to in the book. but anyway, that's one file is the bibliography file. but the main one is the research file which is right here, and it automatically put -- each one of these going this way is a note card and this is pretty odd because it is the year month and day and it puts it in chronological order and it starts with 960 solomon completes the first temple. that comes from book number 438. i don't know why it's page 99 but this is some material on the hebrew profits. but of course as the movement -- as we get -- as the movement itself rises in to public attention leader in the 1950's it's more common you would get more than one note on the same day. for example october 29, 1956 there is a universal newsreel which came from the national archives in fact i guess three of the
was the anti-edison. thomas edison invented money. it was business. it was america. rutherford was of english school, as later was a young man named tim berners-lee who felt the scientific publication should be opened and the wayside, rutherford never had a patent in his life. the wayside advancely by opening this dissemination of information, that there was some kid in new zealand who would read this and figure out the next step. and that's the kind of size i wanted to write about. when rutherford died, he died rather early in the late 30s. his bank account was 7000 pounds, which was exactly his own nobel prize money in 1911. i will than by talking about the new times once had a very bright science editor named comfort. and in "the new york times" magazine in 1936, he wrote what these people did, einstein, rutherford, or eisenberg, plunk, the heroes of the heroic age of physics. and this is what he said they did. suppose that nobody on earth had ever heard a piece of music. and suppose that beethoven's fifth symphony is played over and over again by invisible musicians. that this is his prob
ground. i have a question for you, jeanne, from bob in california. he says america elected a democrat majority to congress and the white house. how in blazes, he writes, did he end up with a subcommittee of equal representation by the minority? >> well, i think that in the senate, they have 60 votes, but it's an illusion nature number. even the democrats are not united around one plan. so that's part of it. they had to come up with a compromise that was going to appeal to the broadest number of democrats and hopefully some republicans as well. and those moderate republicans who are in the negotiations in many ways represent the voices of the conservative democrats who are not in the room. in addition, the white house from the beginning said they did want a bipartisan plan. if possible, they wanted to see that created. and so it was a goal to try to work with the republicans. three stepped forward, and i don't think max baucus was prepared to walk away from those three until it's certain they can't come to terms because baucus would like to have republican votes onboard. gwen: we have

is that the private sector is not going to help. i mean, 20% of the people in america don't have health insurance. it's a major impediment to people starting small businesses because they remain with these very large companies and won't go out on their own. entrepreneurship is not going to come from the private sector. it's going to come from the government nationalizing our health insurance system. david: that 20% figure is pretty high even if you believe the 47 million figure. >> absolutely. look. half the people without insurance right now could get it if they so wanted it. what we're talking about is overhauling the entire system for the sake of less than 1% of the people in the country. so, you know, 1% to 10%. it's an argument i think that is won by the private market. david: quentin hardy has been mulling all this over. he has put it together. go ahead, quentin. >> how much waste and fraud is there in the private sector, in the insurance industry among private hospitals in america. >> lots. >> when you talk about it in medicare, you really do need to have some kind of standard against how the
